Instagram controversially removed its 'likes' feature for Australian users in a shock new move on Thursday. 

And while the decision has caused a stir among reality stars and influencers, Rebecca Judd told Daily Telegraph she backs the move and the impact it will have. 

The AFL WAG, 36, believes not being able to see the number of likes a post generates will benefit the younger generation and their mental health.

Rebecca said: 'I don't put any self-worth on how many likes I get, but I can see that [for] the younger generations, especially adolescents, how that could be troubling.'

She added to the publication: 'Really, at the end of the day, it's not important how many likes you get, so if it is for mental health - I think it's a great thing.'

Rebecca herself has a huge following of 832k and isn't shy of a few likes when it comes to the photos she uploads.
